Outside school Mogensen is involved in volunteer work throughout the community, including serving as an intern at the Humane Society of Moab Valley and working as a volunteer at the Christmas Box House.

She is a junior prom chairman and has helped out the HOPE club with community service projects. She has received outstanding achievement awards for maintaining a 4.0 grade-point average and for outstanding citizenship.

Two notable projects are his Eagle Scout Project, which required him to build a sign for the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration, and helping out as a National Honor Society volunteer at the Pumpkin Chuckin’ Festival.
